But when you're Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and your wedding is the biggest event of the year, the formula has to change quite a bit, Tatler has explained. As senior royal and royal-to-be, the pair must maintain their squeaky-clean images, but that doesn't mean they don't get to enjoy a stag and hen do. To chart the events’ most likely courses, we look to past examples within the Royal Family. Prince Harry and Meghan aren't likely to know the details of their fetes.

Everything you need to know about Prince Harry and William's step-sister, Laura Lopes (including whether she'll be invited to the royal wedding) Being a member of the royal family often means living life in the public eye.
